Wilting in the Heat

Speckled Wood
Yesterday we endured, rather than enjoyed, the coruscating heat along the Humber bank.  Things seemed a little quiet in the morning with only 36 species, but things perked up a little in the afternoon.  We had Yellow Wagtails on both sessions, but the Yellowhammers only turned out after noon.  The Spotted Flycatcher was seen for a few minutes down a little lane.  it may have been a migrants still on its way to its intended breeding grounds.  It was another good day for insects with only Orange-Tips avoiding the cameras.
